Shifting

Moving through a fierce battle is dangerous; you must be careful to avoid a misstep that gives your foe a chance to strike a telling blow. The way you move safely when enemies are nearby is to shift.

  • Action: Immediate
  • Movement: 5 feet
  • Provoke? No. If you shift out of a square adjacent to an enemy, you don’t provoke an attack of opportunity.
  • Use on Difficult Terrain? No, unless you’re able to ignore the effects of difficult terrain.
  • Restrictions: You can’t shift when using a form of movement that requires a skill check.
  • Changes from old rules: Shift replaces ‘5-foot step’.
